Rise of Kossuth
Simply put: Whether acting, singing, or storytelling, he is generally considered the greatest all-around performer in Faerun. No one captures an audience like Gareth. A speech from him can inspire a broken empire to victory. A sad song on his guitar can crush the hopes of the greatest dreamers and visionaries. Kings seek his advice, their daughters seek his companionship. To be sure, Gareth takes no side for very long. He blows like the wind and in whichever direction most benefits him. He is a notorious playboy and has had lovers from different races and backgrounds, though these women are usually of prominence and used for more than intimacy. He prefers performing in Waterdeep and Trailsend for two reasons: 1. Adventures of every kind pass through their Inns and 2. They pay him the most gold!
